The triliteral root ʿayn yā nūn (ع ي ن) occurs in the Quran 65 times.

(2:60) Moses was seeking water for his people, so We said, "Strike the rock with your staff." Thus, twelve springs (Arab. عَيْنًا, ʿaynan) burst out of it; each tribe then knew from where to drink. "Eat and drink from God's provisions, and do not roam the earth as corruptors."

(23:50) We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign, and We gave them refuge on high ground, a place for resting and with a water spring (Arab. وَمَعِينٍ, wamaʿīnin).
